was traced to a battery in the plane's auxiliary power unit. the ntsb says the battery suffered severe fire damage. by the way, they sent two more investigators there. we have checked with airlines that fly the dreamliner. many say they have checked the battery and the wiring. boeing also issuing a statement today saying with regards to the fire investigation, nothing that we've seen in this case indicates a relationship to any previous 787 power system events, all of those relating to electrical concerns on the dreamliner. meanwhile, like deja vu in boston, a jal dreamliner suffered a fuel leak on the boston runway losing 40 gallons of jet fuel before it returned to the gate. they fix that had fuel leak t.eventually took off n.december the faa ordered dreamliner fuel lines be properly install. one of those stories where there's a lot of headline risk. shares of bothering over the last two days this. stock has been absolutely pummeled. the market cap fall, $2.7 billion, by the way, dropping two bucks today, another 2.5%, so there is a lot of headline risk out there right now when you look a
in the future. the ntsb is considering some new regulations that would require electric and hybrid cars to emit noise to make conditions safer for pedestrians who may not hear the cars coming. it would also mean a congressional mandate. the sound would need to be loud enough for people to hear it over street noise when the car is going less than 18 miles an hour. >> you know who has a story about this? >> lawrence does, ironically. what a great segue. i guess you had an issue in the parking lot. >> i was out shopping in a grocery store and i almost got run over by a prius. i didn't look, you know, you're listening for the car. because they are so silent i didn't hear it. so that's a concern. >> sure you didn't have knight ranger on in your car? >> i should have taken off the headphones.

the ntsb is now starting to look at exactly the air worthiness issues, what was behind it, they've got investigation teams that are on their way to boston. and they're going to be asking the tough questions, wolf. they're going to want to know why brand-new aircraft, seemingly have recurring problems, albeit, of a different nature. are these the little glitches that boeing says they are, that happen with all new major complicated planes, or is there something else that's happening? there are lots of rumors, wolf, about whether the wiring has been done properly, whether this has been done properly or the other. so that's the issue at the moment. >> i assume, richard, there's been a backlash already, from the airlines that have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to purchase these dreamliners from boeing? >> yes. and the serious part about that is the airlines are used to glitches. so it's not like you or me, the airlines expect a certain amount of headache, toothache, pain and misery with a new plane, a new model. but they don't expect it to be of this level. aog is the phrase they us
in what we understand. the ntsb and boeing, a technical team from boeing, they're investigating the fire on the dreamliner. it was found in a compartment with batteries, and electrical components. it's not entirely clear at this point exactly what caused the fire. it is believed that it might have been caused by one of the lithium batteries on the dreamliner. that is an issue, because the dreamliner uses lithium im batteries to power onboard electronics. way back in 2007 the faa issued special rules for the use of lithium im batteries because of the concern of flammability risk involving those batteries. this is the fourth dreamliner incident involving its electronics, or losing power, since december 4th. look at this timeline. back on november 4th, united took its first domestic 787 flight, at the time there had been no reports. a month later, a united flight going to niewark to houston, experienced mechanical problems, reporting a loss of power. cutter airways a few days later had to ground one of its 787 jets for what it said was a faulty generator. the 14th of december, united ground
's going to make a lot of people nervous. the ntsb is now investigating the 787 on the tarmac at logan airport yesterday morning, catching fire, after the plane had landed. the crew and the passengers had all deported. the fire was found in a compartment with batteries and electrical components. and again the passengers and crew were not on board during the fire. but this is the fourth incident since november or since december 4th where we've had a problem with the dreamliner. now remember united had its first domestic 787 flight back on november 4th. just a month later united had a flight from houston to newark, it made an emergency landing in new orleans. after experiencing mechanical problems, a loss of power. qatar air on december 9th said it grounded one of its 737 -- or 787s because of a faulty generator. similar problem, loss of power in flight. and then on december 14th, united grounds two of its four dreamliners due to problems with an electrical panel and then finally, yesterday you have the emergency crews responding to a 787 fire at logan airport. now the dreamliner, and th
of them seemingly quite serious, like the fuel leak, will be giving cause for concern. that's why the ntsb here in the united states is looking at worthiness, at what happened, and is certainly not going to be taking this very lightly. these were two serious incidents that happened. >> and what is so special, what is so revolutionary about these planes? >> the way it is built. no aluminum, carbon fibers, composite, the plane is lighter. it has new engines. it has bigger windows. it has new avionics, everything about what the plane is made from and the way it is made. boeing has subcontracted large parts of the manufacturer to different companies, particularly japan and elsewhere. the parts are flown into the united states where they're assembled in the carolinas and out in washington state. so the totality of the plane is a revolution for boeing, in how it is made, what it is made, and that's why perhaps there are these problems. but, here is the important thing to bear in mind, would i get on a dreamliner tonight? across the ocean, yes. no question about it. >> i was going to ask you, you
speaking with the pilot and key players on board. the ntsb has announced
